Crush your enemies, climb the tower of paperwork, or do both at the same time. Intel's Core i7 processor not only makes it possible, it makes it easy. The Core i7 920 has quad cores that run at 2.66GHz and shares 8MB of L3 cache.Quad cores means true multi-tasking and multi-threading. One core handles the usual action on your operating system, while the second can play a DVD on the TV, the third download a file from internet, and the fourth one sends audio to the kids in another room without lags or stutters. All this is made easier with Intel’s advanced Digital Media Boost.
From the Manufacturer
The Intel Core i7-920 processor combines the power of four 3.06 GHz computing cores into a single processor, guaranteeing enough processing power for the most demanding applications. With 8 MB of smart cache, the Core i7-920 processor ensures that you get maximum responsiveness from your system, even when several intensive programs run simultaneously. Compatible with motherboards based on the Intel X58 Express chipset, the Core i7-920 processor takes your computing and gaming experience to the next level.
With four cores in one processor, users will experience better multitasking and multithreaded performance.

The i7 family is Intel's flagship processor, and for good reason. With the i7 family, Intel engineers invented a revolutionary new style of microarchitecture. They replaced the front side bus -- a longtime staple of processor design -- with a new technology called QuickPath Interconnect (QPI). Using QPI, the i7-920 achieves unprecedented levels of bandwidth, and can use its four computing cores to their maximum potential.
To put it simply, users will enjoy faster and more streamlined processing than ever before. Your computer will handle multiple projects and applications without the slowdown you'd experience with a lesser processor.
Extremely intensive programs like high-definition media editors will run more smoothly and responsively. And you'll be able to experience next-generation games without frame-rate hiccups and slowdowns.
New Technologies Boost Performance
The Intel Core i7-920 processor also makes use of several other cutting-edge technologies:
- Turbo Boost Technology allows the processor to run up to 133 MHz faster when it's operating below power/thermal limits.
- Hyper-threading Technology enables more efficient use of processor resources, making the most of highly threaded software like media players and next-generation games.
- Smart Cache Memory increases available RAM resources, leading to less lag while multi-tasking.
Whether editing high-definition videos, touching up family photos, or splicing up music, the Intel Core i7-920 processor provides the processing power needed. The processor's four cores are optimized to keep up with the most advanced digital editing software. It also accelerates DVD encoding and compression, allowing you to easily share your HD home videos with everyone.
With the advent of next-generation games, PC gaming is more immersive than ever. The latest games take advantage of multi-threaded programming, allowing for more realistic graphics, physics, and artificial intelligence (AI). But you'll need more than just a good graphics card with high GPU output to fully experience all these effects. Underlying the visual realism and advanced AI scripts are thousands of high-speed calculations that your CPU must process.
Fortunately, Intel Core i7-920 processor is specifically designed to handle these calculations. Using multi-thread architecture, it has the ability to process thousands of graphical characteristics at once, resulting in a smooth and lag-free experience. Intel worked closely with CryTek -- the developers of the advanced game engine behind such games as Crysis and Far Cry -- to guarantee that gamers have an immersive and lifelike experience.
The Intel Core i7-920 processor is backed by a three-year limited warranty.

When I get more free time I will start overclocking since this thing is destined for it. From my understanding thats what most people do with it anyways. Its made for overclocking and now that I have put all new fans and everything in my case I am ready to go and do it now. This is probably the best bargain for the i7 if you can get it overclocked and running stable. Though I found it to be the best bargain mostly because I was on a budget with my new computer. My setup is now this Intel X58SO motherboard, i7 920, 6 gigs Corsair Dominator 1600, Cooler Master V8 EVGA 8800 GTS 640MB and Vista 64. All of this comes together to make one incredible computing experience.
The new mounting system is completely simply. No pins to line up into tiny holes. Alignment is fool-proof, as is the clamping.
Note that this kit comes with its own heat-sink. No need to buy another, unless you are really nervous about heat. I thought the included sink was great, and I've used it for 3 months now with no issues whatsoever.
Fast? Absolutely. Team this with an SSD and you will have the fastest computer you've ever owned.
No complaints whatsoever. I'm thrilled with it.
Installation was easy after I had the confidence to clamp it down as tightly as it needed to be, and the stock cooler attached easily. Even though no thermal paste was supplied, I had some from another job and applied it sparingly.
The new system has been running for a couple of weeks, going through a battery of memory tests, hard drive tests, and installation of the operating system (64 bit Windows 7 beta, build 7000) and software. No hiccups anywhere in the process.
The only thing that could possibly be registered as a complaint is that the stock cooling fan is a little loud. It's not noisy, but in a system without any noise from a video card, quiet hard drives, a quiet power supply, you can hear the CPU fan if you pay attention. The good news is that some fine aftermarket solutions exist, and should I become too sensitive to what sound there is coming from this system, that's the route I would follow.
I don't regret not stepping up to the i7 940, as the price difference does not justify the apparently small increase in clock speed. While faster is always better, it doesn't always represent the best bang for the buck. I think the i7 920 does the job very well.

my main PC, which is a 478 socket 3.2Ghz P4 chip, running 4gb of PC3200 ram.
The speed of the i7 maybe only be 2.66Ghz, but with the fast FSB speed & 6Gb's of
DDR3 ram, plus the four cores of course, makes this baby really fly.
My only regret is two weeks after I bought it, Intel brought out the 930 chip running at 2.8Ghz for only a tenner more!
Still that's life, we alway's want a bigger one!
I had a little play with the clock frequency in the Bios, I changed it from the 133 setting to 140, this boosts
the speed up to 2.8Ghz (same as the 930 chip)I then when a little further up to 150 base clock, giving a speed
I'm pleased to say the cpu temperature stayed the same and it's still stable after two weeks of use. No increase
was needed to the CPU voltage (which is the main course of over heating), however I do have a massive cooler (Noctua Nh-U12P) which I'm sure is a big help.
It would seem the chip is happy as the temperature has not changed, I'm also happy as I don't feel too bad about
missing out on getting the 930 chip. Motherboard is an Asus P6T SE.
